    SNIP:

    DNC Chairwoman Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (FL) appeared on the season premiere of HBO's "Real Time" with host Bill Maher this Friday.

    In the Overtime portion of the show, which is broadcasted and available only on the internet, Wasserman Schultz got into race politics, claiming the Democratic Party is the "natural home" for minorities.

    Wasserman Schultz says minorities feel "comfortable" because the Democratic Party stands up for "the issues that matter to those communities and Republicans shun them." Transcript below.

    Debbie Wasserman Schultz, DNC Chairwoman: "Just look at the chamber at the State of the Union. Look at the side of the chamber that the Democrats sit on and the side of the chamber that Republicans sit on. And you can notice a dramatic difference in who chooses to affiliate as Democrats and who chooses to affiliate as Republicans. The diversity in the Democratic Party is remarkable. We truly are the big tent party."

    all of it here with comments.

    Let's not forget, the minorities in the Republican party are all just a bunch of Uncle Tom's anyway.......

    White Democrat: There, there, Mr. Minority. We know you're just not good enough to succeed on your own without the help of white Democrats. You just keep pulling the D lever, and we'll keep pretending we care about you.

    Not really.

    They are told they are either second class citizens, by Republicans..or not wanted at all.

    Fine by me.

    Democrats see humans. Republicans, not so much.

    Why wouldn't minorities vote for the party that best represents their interests vs the party that uses them to score points with the radical right?

    Cain was on Real Time too. He was pretty funny now that he doesn't have to clear every word with the Republicans.
